What is the Avoidance worksheet?

Avoidance is basically running away from reality and the situations that are difficult for you or you don’t want to face. Avoidance behaviors are any actions or behaviors you choose as a defense mechanism to get away from facing the situation you don’t want to deal with. But, avoidance is not the solution rather just a short term management technique that will prevent you from not experiencing immediate distress, if you don’t deal with it and keep avoiding the situation for the long term then it not only just exaggerates the situation but also makes it worse.
